The pressure to reduce costs and at the same time increase flexibility is a permanent companion of IT departments. For our customers, especially for banks and insurance companies, this has brought the consolidation of database systems into focus. Our reports on the successful replacement of old database systems such as IBM IMS therefore met great interest:

IMS-Ablösung bei Gothaer: In Time – In Budget – In ScopeIMS Replacement at Gothaer: In Time – In Budget – In Scope

Automatically migrating from IBM IMS DB to IBM Db2 was Gothaer Systems' task. Delta offered a solution consisting of know-how, suitable tools and services for this task. The entire migration project (45,000 sources, 447 IMS databases) ran smoothly and without downtime. Above all, Gothaer was able to further develop the applications in parallel.

At Gothaer, the replacement of old technologies is another step in its 'Smarter Mainframe' strategy to modernise its IT landscape. The full integration of today's operational systems on the host - in the context of new projects - is immensely facilitated and contributes decisively to the digitalisation and the accelerated implementation of new functional requirements.

Provinzial schafft vollständige Migration von IBM IMS/DB zu IBM Db2 mit DeltaProvinzial achieves complete migration from IBM IMS/DB to IBM Db2 with Delta

With the tools and services from Delta Software Technology, Provinzial Rheinland managed the complete application and data migration from IBM IMS DB to IBM Db2 for more than 75 IBM IMS databases and over 36,000 artefacts in an automated and secure manner.

The migration from the extremely fast IMS databases, whose application programs are often precisely aligned with the storage structures, to the more flexible Db2 databases, which are suitable for ad-hoc queries, often leads to a loss of performance. Provinzial also feared this. However, due to the automated migration and the possibility to individually adapt the transformation rules, there were no performance losses. The specifications for the performance of the migrated applications were met to Provinzial's complete satisfaction.

Further Information

Old database technology causes high costs and makes it difficult to use new technologies for central and critical IT applications. Moreover, there are fewer and fewer developers and system engineers for the old technology. This is true for hierarchical databases like IBM IMS DB as well as for other non-relational databases.

We present ways to preserve the functionality of your applications and migrate to SQL databases without risk.

Let's talk about how to safely replace old database technology in your organisation.
